This delicious spring salad is loaded with nutrients! To begin, eggs are rich in high quality protein and choline. Choline, an often forgotten essential nutrient, is especially beneficial for pregnant women as it helps in proper fetal development. In addition, arugula is an excellent source of vitamins A and C, and contains a high level of antioxidants, making it a nutritional powerhouse! This salad is great for having a healthy pregnancy.
4 cups organic arugula, washed and dried
1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled and chopped
1 ripe organic tomato, chopped
2 tbsp. crumbled feta cheese
4 organic eggs, poached until medium
2 tbsp. raw sunflower seeds
¼ cup quality extra virgin olive oil
1 medium clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
Yield: Serves 2
